The sleepy town of Heartsdale, Georgia, is jolted into panic when Sara Linton, paediatrician and medical examiner, finds Sibyl Adams dead in the local diner. As well as being viciously raped, Sibyl has been cut: two deep knife wounds form a lethal cross over her stomach. But it's only once Sara starts to perform the post-mortem that the full extent of the killer's brutality becomes clear. Police chief Jeffrey Tolliver - Sara's ex-husband - is in charge of the investigation, and when a second victim is found, crucified, only a few days later, both Jeffrey and Sara have to face the fact that Sibyl's murder wasn't a one-off attack. What they're dealing with is a seasoned sexual predator. A violent serial killer.

The narrator was easy to listen to and the story followed with an predictable but solid story line. Enjoyable.
The plot flows nicely, the story is enticing. It makes you want to read to find out what's going on. It's creepy and disgusting in places. The characters didn't grab me much though, didn't stick in my mind like they should have done. The narrator was good, get voice fitted well to the story. Overall a good impression though, I would be willing to read more of her books.
I did listen to the whole of this and on the whole quite enjoyed it but I wouldn't rate it as highly as other books I have listened to.
"a bit like a made for TV moviie"
struggled with this book. couldn't connect with the characters or their motivations. they just seemed shallow and the accent just made everything seem silly and trite. it passed the time but if it had been a movie on TV, I'd have switched off.
really great story told from various points of view, keeps you guessing as to who the murderer is! very graphic but great nonetheless! good relationship story going through too!
loved it excellent griping storyline, going to start from the first book now can't wait to get stuck in to the first series
